Times, they are a-changing. For decades, women have been starving themselves, spending more than they can afford on cosmetics and shaming each other into conforming to a set of beauty standards that were attainable to a very small, very specific group of people (i.e. models).
In 2015, social media is finally breaking down these standards, one hashtag at a time. We will likely always look towards celebrities to provide us with elusive images of perfection. But, with the emergence of hashtags like #effyourbeautystandards and #loveyourlines, we are becoming more and more accustomed to seeing a variety of female body shapes and sizes splashed across our social media platforms.
